[Parker Lewis] Can't Lose is shameless in its cloning of Ferris Bueller's Day Off: hip-dude lead, nerdy best friend, snotty sister, belligerent principal. You've seen it before. Last week, actually, on NBC's obnoxious ripoff that got rights to the actual [Ferris] character.
While the show is unquestionably, as Parker would say, a ``no-brainer,'' it's not necessarily a teeth grater. Will it do anything for Fox when it moves to 7:30 EDT/PDT, a companion to True Colors? In this situation, Parker Lewis might not win.
